Virginia Myers taught printmaking to undergraduates at the University of Iowa. Her prints are characterized by powerful draftsmanship, often executed in drypoint. An experimental printmaker, Myer specialized in making large format prints that include mixed intaglio techniques. Notably, she invented and patented the Iowa Foil Printer, a machine that laminates metallic foils on paper for printing. Myers’s imagery included heroic female figures; bristling and charging animals; and a passionate anti-war series made at the time of the Vietnam War. Later, she turned to depicting the Iowa landscape. Tenacre was the name of Myers’s home near North Liberty, Iowa.
